Colorado Gives Day annually celebrates and encourages online philanthropy in the state, and BlueModus is once again proudly participating in this amazing event happening today. Our team has donated $500 to the Autism Society of Colorado, the worthy organization with a mission to improve the lives of all affected by autism.
1 in every 68 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Autism is a neurodevelopmental condition characterized by communication difficulties, challenges with social interactions, and repetitive behaviors and restrictive interests. The Autism Society of Colorado (ASC) advocates for and supports ALL Coloradans affected by autism, so that they have ready access to the services and supports they need, while also leading happy and fulfilling lives. The non-profit serves not only individuals with autism, but also families, providers, and educators throughout the entire state.
"I have a niece diagnosed with Autism," says Todd Reed, Web Developer at BlueModus, who selected this month's charity, "I've seen firsthand how it can impact a family, and know that the ASC provides wonderful support for everyone affected."
